Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Bobby Lee Rodgers Trio--best show I've seen since the Grateful Dead!!

yea, the first thing that I did when I got back in the office yesterday morning was go to archive in order to check out his shows. Bad idea, as that's pretty much all I did yesterday--got very little work done, and here I am doing the same damn thing today!

Anyway, thanks for the "head's up" re the 1/13/10 show, though I had already listened to it yesterday, as it was the second highest rated show on archive!

Obv. I'm new to the BLR scene, but assuming someone adds last week's shows at the Green Parrot (I only saw the May 6th & 7th shows) I'll be interested to hear from long-time fans how those shows rate compared to other shows you've seen / heard. Quite frankly I cannot imagine that they are capable of playing like that on a regular basis. Again, I'm a total newbie, but from what I was told it was a relatively new lineup ("Blade" on bass & "Big Country" on drums, two cool cats from Asheville, NC) but IMO I saw something special, & it was evident to all that they blew it out & left it all on stage that night. In fact, I could relate some interesting stories about the night, but I don't think people would believe them. Suffice it to say that one woman literally "got off" on the music. I think she had a transcendent experience . . . I know I did! In fact, I enjoyed myself so much that I drove to Jensen Beach the following day to see them play @ a private party. Not sure if it was cool of me to show up or not, but in cases like that, I figure it's usually better to beg forgiveness than ask permission!

Anyone headed to the BLR shows this weekend in central Florida?? God-willing I'll be there!!
